About Your Library
Reading is very important at St Mary's so we keep our Library well stocked because it's always thrilling to lose yourself in a good book and with the turn of every page you are transported to another world, be that real or imagined.
If you walk down the corridor towards KS1 just across from the Year 2 classroom you will easily find it. Miss Osborne our HLTA, selects a team of Year 6 children to help her keep the Library running smoothly every year. It's a big job keeping books logged out and back in again and shelving titles back in their correct places.
The books are divided into Fiction and Non-Fiction. Fiction is a fancy word for stories, they're great to read but they are imagined and are not true. All the books in this category are shelved alphabetically by the author's surname which means Enid Blyton would come before J.K Rowling and so on. The author is the person who has written the book.
Non-Fiction books are books that are all true. They have lots of subjects like History, Biology, Religion and Science. Each subject has a code given to it which is called the Dewey decimal system. It's numbered according to subject and then each subject is also colour coded to make it easier to see. Look for the number on the shelf edge and keep your eye out for the coloured sticker on the edge of the book - it will match the colour and number of the Dewey decimal chart on the wall above the shelf.
Get to know when it is your turn to visit the Library and choose your new books - the schedule was at the beginning of this page. Treat the books well because lots of other readers would like to enjoy them after you've returned them.
